Human Resources

Welcome to the Mercyhurst community!

Mercyhurst University seeks to attract, develop and retain quality and committed faculty, staff and administration. With hospitality central to the Mercy Mission, we’re committed to building a culturally diverse workplace that resembles the world we seek to serve. We believe our students’ educations are best served through a challenging learning experience that defies sameness of thought and offers exposure to unfamiliar dimensions of the world. Living, learning and working at Mercyhurst means being part of a campus that insists on respect for all people. At Mercyhurst, we’ve come to recognize diversity is nearly limitless in scope. Our campus welcomes people of different faiths, ethnicities, cultural traditions, sexual and gender identities, and socioeconomic backgrounds—and there’s always room for more.

We invite you read on and learn more about what it means to be part of the Mercyhurst community. If you’re not yet familiar with our region, you can also explore what it’s like to live and work in Erie, Pennsylvania, and North East, Pennsylvania.
